If I had one of the later ('81 or so) cb750's that are electric start, can I retrofit the kickstart from an earlier engine to it?

I only ask because there is an '81 engine for sale locally here for $50 and I thought it'd be worth acquiring but I'm looking to have a kicker.

no. The entire internal kick gears were removed. Unless you have mad modification/fabrication skills, and even then I don't thinkyou can.

You'd be going about things the VERY HARD way.

Just get your hands on an older mill.
